A police chief in Pennsylvania has been forced to resign after his wife made posts on social media in support of President Donald Trump, according to the city’s Fraternal Order of Police.
At the time of the announcement, Lancaster Mayor Danene Sorace spoke briefly about the chief’s retirement during a news briefing before pivoting toward who might succeed Berkihiser.
“I recognize that there will be many conversations in the days and weeks ahead about the future leadership and direction of the Lancaster City Bureau of Police,” Sorace said.
“I look forward to engaging in these conversations with the many stakeholders in our community. For now, today is about Chief Berkihiser’s retirement and honoring his 26 years of service,” she said.
